Afghanistan Cricket Set For Multi-Million Dollar Windfall After World Cup Qualification

Afghanistan cricket is set for a multi-million dollar windfall after qualifying for the Int'l Cricket Council Cricket World Cup in '15. The side from the sport's second tier will receive a $1M preparation fee from the ICC ahead of the tournament in Australia and New Zealand. It comes on top of the $422,000 awarded to the Afghanistan Cricket Board by the ICC Board in April as part of its Targeted Assistance and Performance Programme, aimed at raising playing standards. In '14, the top ICC Associate and Affiliate Members -- including Afghanistan -- will also receive approximately $750,000 in base support through the ICC Development Funding Policy. According to ACB CEO Dr. Mohammed Noor, there is the potential for further funding that could amount to as much as $850,000 from the country's government and sponsorship agreements from domestic and int'l businesses eager to ride the wave of Afghanistan success (ICC).
